Couples Therapy for People Who Are Tired of Hoping It’ll Just Get Better
Here’s the thing, maintaining a healthy relationship takes commitment because we’re always changing. And if the relationship doesn’t evolve, it can cause one or both of you to feel more like roommates than soulmates. Our couples therapy sessions are for partners who want to strengthen the connection they know is there...it’s just getting lost in the day-to-day BS. Because at the end of the day, being in a relationship should be about having fun together. So if you’re not there...we’ll help you get there.
What can you expect?
Before we schedule our first session, we’ll begin with a three-step on-boarding process to make introductions, figure out where we’re at in the relationship, and most importantly, where we want it to be. It looks something like this:
Step one: Meet together
The three of us will sit down, make introductions, and talk about what brought us together. Pretty classic therapy stuff.
Step two: Meet individually
Just like it sounds, we’ll meet one-on-one to gather additional background from each of you. This includes family, relationship and sexual history so we can understand how you’ve developed into the adult you are today. It’s also a chance for each person to discuss the parts of themselves they’d like to change in order to improve the relationship.
Step three: Regroup
From here, we’ll collaborate on what we heard in the first two steps. We’ll then outline a path forward for what aspects of the relationship we want to improve, and how we’re going to do it.
What we expect out of you
We’ll be honest, we expect a lot from both individuals attending couples therapy, but the most important is accountability. We see our best results and biggest breakthroughs when individuals can hold themselves accountable for the unproductive parts of their relationship. In other words, this therapy thing doesn’t work without your effort.
But that’s not all. We also expect both of you to be committed and open to feedback. That means truly making an effort to change behaviors negatively impacting the relationship. It also means following through with any suggested exercises, reading materials and videos recommended by your therapist. If you can do that, we have a much better chance of making a meaningful change in your relationship.
